To counteract this a vulture restaurant was established on the lodge property.

By now the daily vuture feeding at precisely 1 o'clock draws groups of guests from all over the world to experience and document the feeding frenzy at the vulture restaurant.

Community support

Victoria Falls Safari Lodge not only promotes the survival of vultures around Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, both for their ecological value as health specialists and for the enjoyment of future generations, but also engage in community support, thus earning a three penguin-rated Welfare, Conservation and Tourism Support 2016 Award from BirdsConTour.
